Tolo from Mo's Digital Pencil - for Making Cards Magazine

This is the final of my cards made for Making Cards Magazine back in February - seems like another world!  This is Tolo from Mo's Digital Pencil and one of my all time favourite images from Mo.  My little granddaughter, Violet saw it when it was returned from it's photo shoot for the magazine and said she loved it so I kept it for her 4th birthday a couple of weeks ago and added her name and her age.  She's so excited to be 4 -missing her so much at the minute but had a little face time last night.  Mind you, all she wanted to do was speak to her Aunty Em who has come home for the duration.
The papers are Introspection from Prima and the sentiment is from the Kaisercraft You set.

I hope your keeping well and safe at the minute.

Hugs, Juliexx

PFP Bunnies and/or Chicks Challenge

Hi everyone, I'm completely out of routine in these strange times so posting a bit late today!!  I think we do need to have things to distract us at the moment and crafting is a great pastime, that also keeps  us connected for those of us that blog and uses social media.

Mo's Loads of Love

Morning folks - I hope everyone is keeping well.  I find I'm not blogging so much - there's been so many other things to think about at the minute. 

I suppose Loads of Love from Mo's Digital Pencil is quite appropriate in these times of keeping clean! I matched up the image with some old papers but I've lost the note I  made to myself of who they'reby. sorry!  I also borrowed the Hello die from my friend, Lesley, when I visited before the days of social distancing and self-isolation! So again I don't know who made it!
Marianne Products Used

Stitched Circle Dies - CR1360
 Cat Dies - LR0591

People keep wondering how they're going to stay busy during these strange times but I find with crafting there are so many choices- card-making, crochet, scrapbooking - I still don't have enough time!

Stay safe everyone.

Fierce Fairy Frankie for Making Cards Magazine

This is another of  the cards that I made for  Making Cards Magazine last month.  I used a number of Mo's Digital Pencil fairies for the feature and I think this is one of my favourites, Fierce Fairy Frankie.  Such a great expression!

The  papers are by Prima from their Melody 6 x6 pad, and I love the Wonky Stitched  Dies from  MFT Dienamics.    There's also a couple of Marianne Dies as per below:

Oval Frame Die   LR0607
Leaves Die SetLR0621
I love the sentiment too that comes with the image - perfect!!

Hope everyone is staying safe and well at the moment.  As least us crafters can find plenty to keep us busy if we have to self-isolate!

Big  cyber hugs,

Passion for Promarkers Make It Feminine

Hi folks -I'm a little late posting today!  This is for our new challenge that started this morning over on the Passion for Promarkers  challenge blog with a lovely theme of Make it Feminine as chosen by our  Nic.  We're being sponsored by JMC Designs and I've used one of their fab quirky images - meet Pippa!

I love pink and black together and these Nit Wit papers are also the perfect complement to this little birdie.  I've cut the curved borders with a Marianne die set, Catalogue no  LR0518.  
I think the sentiment may have been a freebie from years ago but can't be sure!

You can check out the rest of my teamie makes here- using more gorgeous JMC images!

Teen Genius for the new challenge on Mo's Challenge blog

I sort of feel that today's card is rather appropriate given the global problem with those pesky Corona virus germs!  Here's hoping those clever scientists are busy working on a vaccination or something similar.  For now just keep washing those hands!

This is Teen Genius from Mo's Digital Pencil and he's for the new challenge over on the DP2 Challenge blog here where this month's theme is simply the colour Green. 

I've kept him quite simple because the papers are quite busy-from Graphic 45. The little test-tubes and conical flasks were from my friend's stash and the little bubbles are a Memory Box  die set that has been in my stash an age!!
Check out the fabulous green makes of Mo's DT here on the challenge blog and then come and join in our challenge!!  Keep washing those hands!!

Happy weekend!

PFP Dies and Punches

Today's card is for our new challenge at Passion for Promarkers with a fab theme chosen by Marie of Dies and Punches - I do love me a die!!
The image is from Mo's Digital Pencil - Carry The Cake - and is just perfect set in the centre of these little cake box segments made with a die from Marianne Designs!
The little rolled flower comes with the box die but the candles are from another Marianne set  and fits perfectly into the rolled flower which I've used as a candle holder. (Details of Marianne goodies below).
The boxes open too and make lovely little gift boxes for lovely little gifts which is exactly what I used my whole 'cake' for.  So easy to make up too - the segment is all cut with one die and then there is just a little folding and sticking!

Marianne Products Used
Cake Die Set - CR1462
Candle Dies from Candle Bridge set - CR1427

Our fab sponsors this week are Crafty Sentiments Designs who are offering the lucky winner three digi images of their choice -wow!

I hope you like our theme and come and join in the challenge at PFP.  More inspiration from my teamies are also on the PFP blog here.

Gillie from Mo's Digital Pencil in February 20 Making Cards Magazine

Now that the new March edition of Making Cards Magazine is out here in the UK, I can share my cards that were featured in the magazine last month, for Mo's Digital Pencil.

This is the gorgeous Gillie sitting on her rock in the sea - I think it must have been during Storm Dennis by the look of her hair blowing everywhere!  You can find her here in Mo's store.

The Papers are Prima - Alla Prima, I think,  and the wildflower dies are from a Tim Holtz Wildflower set but I can't remember off had which set!

That's all for now from me.

Happy Tuesday!

Feeling Blue? Here's a Peeking Sloth!

Another blue card from me today - love Peeking Sloth - looks like he's partied out already!  You can find him here in Mo's Digital Pencil store. The sentiment die is an oldish one from Memory Box but  think this little guy looks perfect slumped over the edge!!

He's really great value for money too as he comes without the pressie and accessories and with a couple of sentiments!!

Hope it doesn't get too windy where you are today!

Hugs, Julie
